Day 44: Westwood Ho!

Saturday 4th May, 2019

Today we set off on the way home, travelling about 120 kms, first to Katoomba where there was no room at the inn, then on to a little town called Blackheath, we have the very last caravan site. We are outside of the boomgates in Bay 1, and very greatful. It is a level site on a slab, with power, etc.

We have had glimpes of the wonderful Blue Mountains views, but it was too dangerous to take a lot of notice when driving on the busy Great Western Highway, especially as we climbed. We have booked two nights here and hope to be able to get to see at least some of the sights. It’s very challenging with the Winnie as there are many steep hills even in the towns and for some reason, caravan parks are in valleys. The Katoomba Caravan Park is close to some of the major sights, so by coming here we will have to commute back about 15kms.

The featured image is of our lunch stop. Despite the clouds it hasn’t rained on our journey. It is much colder here than Sydney, of course.


We managed to get some parking at the shopping centre in Katoomba and stocked up a bit. We shopped in Sydney, but only small amounts of food that we could carry home.
